CBD might be the most important advancement of modern medicine. Learn how this miracle extract works harmoniously with your body.
The human body contains a complex network of lipids comprising the endogenous ligands and their cannabinoid receptors called the endocannabinoid system. This system, named after cannabis, is a unique communications system in the brain and body that affects many important functions, including how a person feels, moves, and reacts.
The natural chemicals, like CBD, that interact with the endocannabinoid system are called cannabinoids. They interact with receptors to regulate important body functions. Continue reading below...
Unlike the THC which stimulates the CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD activates other receptors such as the vanilloid, adenosine and serotonin receptors. By activating the TRPV-1 receptor for example, CBD plays a role in the mediation of body temperature, pain perception and inflammation.
High concentrations of CBD have also been shown to exert anti-depressant effects by activating the 5-HT1A serotonin receptor. This receptor is involved in a series of processes from pain perception, appetite, nausea and anxiety to sleep and addiction mechanisms.
The reason we call them cannabinoid receptors is because many molecules in the cannabis family of plants have the same chemical composition as the family of molecules that our brains naturally make and use.
Therefore, CBD is very safe and effective because we are not introducing anything new to the body, but rather enhancing its ability to protect itself. CBD can help the body work to its optimal potential by feeding our endocannabinoid system. A healthy endocannabinoid system promotes balance within the cellular mechanisms of the body. This helps can help relieve a myriad of ailments and illnesses many people suffer from.
